... that's what the many Migration Status sites are indicating A bit early, though not unusual. Lucky those visiting in June this year.

Will be in Naboisho mid-Sept. Is it possible that the migration will remain in this area for a while? Possibly move backwards towards Tanzania or continue to move forward? Seems like they are at least a month ahead of most previous years or not?

Thanks!

@Phoenix Do not worry. There are more than one million wildebeests crossing, so the area is action packed until beginning of October.

Phoenix - Naibosho is a fair trek from the Mara River. Normally what they do from Naibosho is a full day drive to the Mara with packed breakfast and lunch. That way you can spend good time around where the wildebeest are.

I am at Naibosho next weekend, so will report back on how it is.
